[rspec-users] fixture instantiated in before block?

Hi all,

Are fixtures not loaded & instantiated in the before block? I thought 
they /should/ be :) eg

before(:all) do
   [@matt_applying_for_it, @matt, @it_industry].each { |v| puts v.inspect }
end

it "should ..." do
   [@matt_applying_for_it, @matt, @it_industry].each { |v| puts v.inspect }
end

=>
nil
nil
nil
#<Object>
#<Object>
#<Object>

Is this a bug or expected behavior?

Thanks,

Keith
